Video about the undercarriage measurement at a CAT dozer by Mevas

For larger Caterpillar dozer, we have reference values for the individual components of the Undercarriage. We measure each part and determine the remaining life. You can take a closer look at the measurement process in our video Undercarriage measurement at a Caterpillar dozer on our YouTube-Channel.

Which details should a reasonable checklist for inspection of a used bulldozer contain?

Inspecting a used bulldozer is crucial to ensure that it meets your requirements and is in good working condition. Here’s a checklist to guide you through the inspection process:

  1. Overall Inspection:
  • Check for visible signs of damage or welding on the frame.
  • Look for any signs of oil or fluid leaks underneath the machine.
  • Inspect the condition of the paint for rust, peeling or excessive wear.

2. Undercarriage:

  • Check the tracks or tires on wheel dozers for wear, damage, or uneven tread wear.
  • Inspect the rollers, idlers and sprockets for excessive wear.
  • Measure the track tension to ensure it meets the manufacturer’s specifications.

3. Engine:

  • Start the engine and check for unusual noises, smoke, blow-by or vibrations.
  • Inspect for oil and coolant leaks around the engine and related components.
  • Check the air filter for cleanliness.

4. Hydraulics:

  • Test all hydraulic functions, including the blade movement.
  • Look for leaks in hydraulic hoses and connections.
  • Check the hydraulic fluid level and condition.

5. Transmission and Drive train:

  • Test the transmission through all gears, forward and reverse.
  • Check for any unusual noises during operation.
  • Inspect the condition of the drive shafts and final drives.

6. Blade:

  • Check the blade for signs of damage, wear, or bending.
  • Test the functionality of the blade or bucket tilt and lift.
  • Ensure that the cutting edges are in good condition.

7. Cab and Controls:

  • Inspect the condition of the cab, looking for damage, rust or water leaks.
  • Test all controls, heating, cooling and warn lights for smooth operation.
  • Check the condition of the operator’s seat and seatbelt.

8. Electrical System:

  • Inspect the battery for age and condition. Check if alternator is charging.
  • Test all lights, indicators and gauges.
  • Check the condition of wiring and connectors.

9. Fluids and Lubricants:

  • Check the levels of engine oil, transmission fluid, hydraulic fluid and coolant.
  • Inspect the color and condition of these fluids.
  1. Documentation:
    • Request and review maintenance records, service history, and any available inspection reports.
    • Check the serial number and verify it against the provided documentation.
  2. Operational Test:
    • Take the bulldozer for a test drive to evaluate its performance.
    • Pay attention to how it steers, accelerates and brakes.
  3. Tires/Tracks:
    • Inspect the condition of tires or tracks for any signs of damage or excessive wear.

Always consider having a qualified mechanic or a Mevas technician perform a thorough inspection if you are not experienced in evaluating heavy equipment. Additionally, consulting the manufacturer’s guidelines and specifications for the specific model of the bulldozer is essential for a comprehensive assessment.
